In the first two months, total coal production dropped 6.4% to 513 million tons; crude steel fell 5.7% to 121.1 million tons; cement production dropped 8.2% to 238.8 million tons. China has been introducing policies designated to cut excess productions in manufacturing industries. The January and February data shows that these policies have been taken effect.

- A major steel producer, Dongbei Special Steel Group, has defaulted on an 800-million yuan bond on March 28. It has another 1-billion yuan bond that will mature on April 3 and is likely to default as well. The company’s debt to asset ratio has remained above 84% since 2010. China’s manufacturing firms are facing oversupply and a drop in prices. Coupled with aggressive borrowing made earlier and tightened controls on banks issuing new loans, many firms lack short-term liquidity and face insolvency.

PetroChina, China’s largest state-owned oil and gas company, reported the worst annual net profit in 2015 since it was founded in 1999. Chinese government has made it a national target to help energy firms to reform by providing subsidies for their production cuts and maintaining a domestic floor price of $40/barrel.
